Fried Bread Nuggets
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, the baking powder, and the salt, stir in the water and knead the mixture on a floured surface unitl it forms a soft but not sticky dough.
Let the dough sit, covered with a kitchen towel, for 15 minutes. Pull off egg-size pieces of the dough and form and stretch them into 1/4 inch thick rounds.
Poke a hole with a finger through the center of each round so that the breads will fry evenly.
In a deep fryer or large heavy skillet heat the canolia oil over moderately high heat until it reaches 350 degrees. Drops the rounds a small amount at a time into the hot oil.
Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown.
Transfer the breads onto a paper towelled plate or onto a rack to drain.
While still hot drizzle the nugget topping and icing onto the nuggets.
